“At this stage in my life, I’m home-based, with small children. Sometimes it’s wonderful, and sometimes it’s hard. But whatever my brain tells me, it’s not nothing. . . . Maybe you feel like your life is achieving little. But by God’s grace, maybe you are doing far more than you think.”
“Microsoft’s To Do app has come a long, long way since inception and today reflects a full-fledged, full-featured GTD app that will meet the needs for many users.”
